I'd like to hear from some Toro owners to see how well the Turbo Force deck stripes with a mulch kit. I realize that the lift is less because of mulching but I"m hopeful the ability to lay an acceptable stripe without a roller is not hurt too much. I'd also like to know how cut quality is on fescue/blue grass with the mulch kit. I know it isn't as good on damp/wet or new grass vs. discharging but how is it under normal conditions? The main reason I'm thinking about getting the mulch kit is to be able to run without the chute flipped up or removed so it isn't in the way. I had a childhood friend that lost an eye due to a mower thrown rock so I will not mow at all without the chute in place or a mulch plate. I've never been wild about the OCDC but I might need to look at it if.
